2015.

I feel like it’s going to be a good year.

Partly because it has to be.

There were many good moments in 2014, but overall, 2014 was hard.

I learned a lot in 2014. How to break hearts (and really well, too), how to be more gentle and kind, and I’ve never placed more value on family and friends. I learned that sometimes you have to listen a bit more and stop talking all. the. time. I’m most proud of learning how to forgive. My mother taught me that it takes a very strong person to find enough compassion in them to forgive and that’s the one thing, at least in the latter half of 2014, I’ve tried to practice.

Like I said in my previous post, I don’t have resolutions but I am looking forward to things in 2015. So here’s to goals of 2015.

1. I am financially stable.

2. I run 2 half marathons, SeaWheeze in August and the other is TBD. Along with a few other 10k runs, just for fun with friends.

3. I go to Edmonton to visit Caleigh and Kamloops to see Sandy & Kim.

4. I travel to one hot place. Bahamas, California, Hawaii, Mexico. Don’t care, it just needs to be hot.

5. I am on track to be a Store Manager.

6. I live by myself in an apartment that I love.

7. I let go of where I “should be” in life.

8. I complete my spin certification and teach on a casual basis.

9. Two of my friends and I have a clear vision and financial plan to open our business.

10. I spend less time on social media: specifically twitter and instagram – and more time present in conversations with people.

11. Get a tattoo. Oh buddy, who would have thought?

    OMG where to start…

    PLEASE RUN YOUR SECOND HALF MARATHON IN SEATTLE!!? Store manager?? BALLER STATUS! Way to go B, this sorta ties into letting go of where you should be and you know I’m always here with you. I had a FANTASTIC life chat with my dad last week about this and we concluded as long as our life slope is progressing upward, we are just fine. AKA store manager at work is legit. I decided to inquire about the supervisor spot at Starbucks too because my boss KEEPS ASKING ME so I figured it’s time.

    I know you wanna live alone, and so do I, so maybe we just live together!? HAHA. In the Bahamas?
